NBC Chicago debuts new set, graphics and music

WMAQ-TV, the Chicago NBC O&O, debuted a new look this week that featured a new set, graphics package and music package. The station has posted a behind the scenes video on Facebook.

The set, designed by Clickspring Design, features a contemporary desk with a 9 monitor wall behind camera center. Back lit panels are on both sides of the monitor with wood and metal trim. The set also features a sleek weather center with many bezel-less monitors, and a standup area.

With the change, the newsroom view is now gone, after nearly 20 years on air.
